Yellow Adventures: Home for Christmas: Port Barton, Kalinga, Puerto Princesa, and Sagada

Yellow Adventures: Home for Christmas: Port Barton, Kalinga, Puerto Princesa, and Sagada | Philippine Travel | Scoop.it

We should start with the scars, since that’s how Hannah and I started.  I picked up my first one when I was four, from a nine iron to the middle of my forehead a la Harry Potter (I lived).  The first time I saw her, my front tooth had been recently involuntarily unaligned and then voluntarily, more or less, realigned with all my other teeth, more or less.  Oddly, this was briefly national news.

PinoyWanderingBoy's Top Travel Blogs for 2013 | Pinoy Wandering Boy | Philippine Travel | Scoop.it

Most blogs in my list are considered as the underdogs - blogs that are quite unheard of but feature interesting travel stories and insights. In a sea of travel sites, blogs that capture both the heart and imagination can be sparse. When you find one, you consider it a gem, so you bookmark it and subscribe to their feeds.  I'm hoping readers to discover these outstanding travel blogs.

| Travel Essay | The Clouds of Bantayan Island : BWAB

| Travel Essay | The Clouds of Bantayan Island : BWAB | Philippine Travel | Scoop.it
There is something about the clouds: they change and how they remind us of ourselves.—They are “unburdened by memory of any kind” unlike us. I could remember the pile of cup noodles below the television swaying, and if they had fallen down, it would have been a signal that the waves won over the ship. Luckily, the waves were not furious enough, but they constantly reminded us with their disturbing presence.

Pinoy Travel Freak: Getting from CDO to Camiguin via Balingoan Port

Pinoy Travel Freak: Getting from CDO to Camiguin via Balingoan Port | Philippine Travel | Scoop.it

Getting to Camiguin from CDO is actually quite easy. But I just had to share our experience for you to learn from--because it didn't turn out smooth as we expected. There are two options in getting to Camiguin Island from Cagayan de Oro City. We took the popular and longer option via Balingoan Port (about 2-3 hours by bus) where we can take the ferry to the island (another 1 hour).
